Ken Forrester Petit Pinotage 2013

Ken Forrester Petit Pinotage 2013

Classic Pinotage aromas of spicy mulberries, plum pudding and cherries, supported by smoky bacon nuances. Juicy and accessible with soft palate and delicious fruit concentration.

This cheerfully unwooded wine can be served with a generous slice of pizza or a barbeque, ideal for a braai.
